Christmas Ornament

This is another ornament I tried to make pretty. I took gold paint and poured it inside, unfortunately the paint was kinda thick and didn't roll around like I wanted to so I took some beads and put them inside hoping they could help make a pretty design on the inside. NOPE! they stuck to the bottom of the thick paint so slowly I rolled the ornament and got the momentum the beads needed and rolled them around. Well they still didn't roll to make a wonderful design so I rolled and rolled until the whole bulb walls were covered. It took for ever to get the 5 little beads out of the bulb. Now I had a gold light bulb!! I decided not to give up and painted some glue on the bulb and then put glitter on it. The glitter was called crystal I think it turned out bluish/purple. Oh well here it is.

Easter 8x8 2 page layout

this is my first 2 page layout. I don't think it turned out half bad. I used many carts on this: Doodle charms - eggs; Pooh and Friends - tree; Platin School - grass; Animal Kingdom - bunny

Altered Christmas Ornament

ok so the challenge is to alter or make a Christmas ornament. thank goodness I had some bulbs. On this one I mod podged little fabric pieces and then Phil put the bow on. I can't tie a bow.

Tinker Bell ITT's

Unbelievably I cut these Tinker Bells with out incident! I have always had trouble cutting from the Tinker Bell cart. I drew the eyes in because they are always so difficult and look wrong.

Buttons card challenge

I loved this challenge. The star and present are also buttons. The tree is from the paper doll dress up cart. I used the snowflake cuttle bug folder then chalked over the embossing. I used frosted lace stickles on the tree and chalked the edges to give it that 'snowed on' look.

Snowman ATC

This is an ATC (action trading card) I haven't made very many of these and this by far is my favorite. 31/2 x 21/2 I started by picking out the snowman (from the doodle charms cart). I actually went to my 'extra' drawer and found him in there. I glued on his eyes and buttons. I found some blue paper and ran it through my cuttle bug using the snowflakes folder. I used a white sparkly chalk and went over it to give it a shimmer. I glued it to a white piece of card stock to give it a bit extra firmness. I tore and glued on white paper to make snow. By this time my eyes and buttons were dry so I glued on the snow man.
